Meanwhile, Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) figures out what is about to happen with the help of Charley Frost (Woody Harrelson), radical radio guy, who tells the truth, as he knows it. While Jackson struggles to save his wife (Amanda Peet) and kids, President Wilson (Danny Glover) tries to save his country and his daughter (Thandie Newton). All the while, Carl Anheuser (Oliver Platt) tries to hold things together as the whole world comes apart faster than anyone knew. Rated PG-13 (158 min.) mike laib 2012.

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
